Meet 14-year-old twins who quit school to learn mechanical work

14-year-old twins, Gloria and Glorine Martels decided to quit school about a year ago to learn mechanical work. They described the work as being ‘in the blood’. 

In a chat with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Gloria indicated that their passion for the job led them and their parents were understanding enough since their father worked in the same field. 

“My father used to work in this field as well as my uncle. Initially, they wanted us to complete school first but we used to run from school to work here. Eventually, they agreed to let us learn,” Gloria said.

According to Glorine, their dream is to become Army wheeled vehicle mechanics in future.

“We want to become soldiers in the future. We will learn on the job for five years and after that, we go back to technical school. Now, we work mainly on BM cars,” Glorine added. 

Speaking with their master, he stated that he doubted their work ethic but they proved him wrong. 

“They are very hardworking and smart. They can disassemble and assemble and also take out the engine. But they are now learning how to detect faults in cars,” he added.
